regulations requiring cleaner gasoline. the obama administration announced the proposed changes today: they would require two-thirds less sulfur in gasoline and a reduction in other emissions beginning in 2017. they also would set tighter pollution limits for new vehicles themselves at the sa time. the e.p.a. says it would reduce premature deaths and improve public health for a minimal cost. but opponents say it could hit consumers at the pump by adding as much as nine cents a gallon. juliet eilperin broke this story for the "washington post" and she joins me now. welcome to the newshour. >> thanks so much. >> so why is the obama administration doing this, putting these proposals out there? >> there are a couple of reasons. one is the fact that they are requiring vehicles to be cleaner in th years ahead theve bical reduced greenhouse-gas emissions from these vehicles. and so you will see between 2016 and 2025, the vehicles are going to become much more efficient, get more piles -- miles per gallon. so one of the things automakers are asking for is for cleaner fuels because the sulfur in gas

to listen to change in the revenue side if, in fact, the administration is prepared to lay out its casheds on what it would do about reform of the entitlement programs. do you believe the president has done all that he should do in laying out what he is prepared to do on that front? >> i think he is prepared. the reason i think that they probably have not come up with specifics is that they have not found a partner who is willing to truly negotiate in a balanced way. in other words,-- in other words, to consider all three legs to that stool. to consider additional ending cuts as well as entitlement reform and revenue. once your speaker of the house says revenues are off the table, he's doing nothing more in the area of revenues, that means there is nobody there who you are able to negotiate with. unless you start with a willingness to look at all three parts of the solution, then it seems to me the president has done as much as he can be expected to do in saying he is willing to look at all three legs to that stool. so i don't criticize the president here. i think with the missing,
